Miami, Florida (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
StampLabel, the positive clothing brand that donates 10 percent of each purchase to charity, has announced that its charity of the month for November is Feeding South Florida. StampLabel has set a goal to raise $500. These funds will help further Feeding South Florida’s mission of ending hunger in South Florida by providing immediate access to nutritious food, leading hunger and poverty advocacy efforts, and transforming lives through innovative programming and education.
Feeding South Florida was founded in 1980 serving about 30,000 pounds of food each month. Today the organization serves 3 million pounds of food each month, through a network of 325 nonprofit partner agencies, throughout Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe Counties. Feeding South Florida currently feeds about 1 million struggling families per year and is looking to increase that number.
“We are excited to be working with Feeding South Florida this month,” stated Joshua Mathis, StampLabel’s Co-Founder and Co-Chief Difference Maker. “They are right in our backyard. This organization provides meals to hard-working families that need a little help with providing food.”
For every $1 raised, Feeding South Florida provides 6 meals to those in need of assistance. Donating $500 will help the organization feed 3,000 people. More and more people are lining up to receive free food. According to their website, “Over the past two years, we have seen an increase in the reliance on emergency food programs by 39%. Families and individuals who were once donors are now standing in line at soup kitchens and food pantries.Those in need of food assistance include children, the working poor, older adults, veterans, physically and mentally disabled, and the homeless. The national average of food insecure children is 1 in 5. In South Florida, it's a staggering 1 in 4.”
This month, when you make a purchase, you are not only buying a great t-shirt, but you are also helping to provide a nutritious meal to those in need. Your purchase provides support to families that urgently need it. Joshua states, "We really want to help raise awareness for this cause and this great organization. By making a purchase, you are truly making a difference."
